BKT launches new Skid Max SR-Skidder

The new tyre is ideal for machinery used in road maintenance work or in waste material deposits


The development of new BKT products does not stop with the business ready to launch its new all-steel radial tyre, the Skid Max SR-Skidder. Specifically designed for use in heavy work environments and on hard surfaces, the company says the product is ideal for machinery used in road maintenance work or in waste material deposits.

The tyre has been designed to reduce the risk of puncture and abrasion while having the ability to transport heavy loads while maintaining ideal stability. BKT says the Skid Max SR-Skidder is a perfect mix of all these requirements and offers longer product life and high load capacity.

The robust casing is equipped with an all-steel structure with steel belts, which give greater resistance on the casing and penetration by foreign bodies. Thanks to the thickness of the tyre sidewalls, puncture risk is also minimised, reducing potential machine downtime. In addition, Skid Max SR-Skidder is equipped with guarding, which helps protect against any punctures and impacts that could damage the area around the rim.

The robust and wide tread has been designed with a continuous central block that in combination with the tread’s mix, which is anti-static and extremely resistant to abrasion, helps guarantee excellent traction and long product life. Skid Max SR-Skidder is currently available in the 260/70 R 12.5 (10 R 16.5) size.
